HolidayIQ Traveller Vishnu Vijayan shares, "Manori is quaint little fishing village in the outskirts of Mumbai. Real quiet place as compared to the hustle and bustle of the city. The main attraction over here is of course the beach, it's quite clean as you compare to most beaches in and around Mumbai and as you can see from the picture above it was quite secluded, may be because I was there on a Monday morning might be the reason."

HolidayIQ Traveller Abhishrut Parihar shares, “Lonavala is the place if you want to go out on a trip for a day or two with family and friends over the weekend. For people staying closeby like Mumbai or Pune, it's a refreshing and soothing holiday spot. The weather was good - pleasant in the morning, rains in the evening. Perfectly romantic.”

HolidayIQ Traveller Samrudha Kadam shares, "The speciality of this place is that it is still unexplored, hence you can enjoy nature undiluted. No hustle bustle like other tourist places like lonavla and Matheran. Just enjoy the rough rustic stay with fresh oxygen to breathe in and enchant your soul. Unfortunately, there aren't much food options available so your hotel is the only place to rely for food. Nothing to shop either. This place is mean to enjoy the waterfalls and the greenery and the awesome lakes. Its quite a safer place with friendly people. A two to three days stay is required for complete experience of the place."

7. Velneshwar - Perfect Place To Swin & Sunbathe

This beach is just the right option for all beach lovers. The place is calm and peaceful. And you can enjoy an array of water sport options on the beach itself. How cool is that? I had a wonderful time here with my family.”

8. Panchgani - Go Strawberry Plucking Here

HolidayIQ Traveller Amey D Sonavane, “Nice little hill station and is the perfect place for a good weekend getaway. Easy accessibility from Mumbai-Pune with frequent bus services. A good place to visit in summers and even better during winters (strawberry season). Table Land is the hallmark. Strawberry cream ice-creams and corn vadas (local delicacy) are must-eats. Enjoy a serene weekend getaway away from the hustle bustle of Mumbai.”

HolidayIQ Traveller Gourav Gaonkar shares, “A very nice place to visit on weekends if you stay close to Mumbai. We visited it recently but it wasn't as cold as we had expected it to be, it was quite comfortable. Best place for couples to go on romantic holidays. It gives a different experience as no vehicles are allowed in the village so either one has to go walking or on horses. Horse riding in Matheran was a memorable experience. There is also a toy train running through the village”
